Products or Machinery

Renold Tooth Chain has always worked closely with customers in glass production. Smooth running and consistent speed prevents vibrations in vacuum coating plants and ensures proper coating of solar glass. Constant, uniform transport makes all the difference in the production of hollow glassware.

The use of a 2-pin system makes it possible to reach high speeds while maintaining a long chain service life while smooth lateral surfaces by innovative laser welding processes offer gap-free transition. The pins are permanently fixed in an outer plate of the same thickness.

Made within one component production run, Renold chains are offering perfect pitch precision and consistent wear elongation.

Renold has invented the TRILEG silent tooth chain with a significantly enlarged contact area for extended pitch chains.

Stainless steel conveyor chains of Renold are the best choice in terms of lifetime, insulation rates and energy cost savings. The lifetime is again multiplied by the use of rolling pivot joints made of wear resistant hardened steel and special grade stainless steel link plates. Any conveyor chain layout is possible.

For transport tasks in the glass industry, we recommend inverted tooth chains with a rolling pivot joint and regular pitch 1/2" or extended pitch 2 x 1/2". All required widths and versions are available, including matching sprockets to ensure optimum functioning.

An inverted tooth conveyor chain is usually laser-welded or riveted. It is additionally available with ground top-surface or ground on both sides.
